Our Little Man

16 posts in this topic

My wife and I were lucky to have our first child this past week. There were some initial issues that landed our little guy in a neonatal intensive care unit. Despite an inauspicious start, our little guy is home and healthy (thank God for modern medicine).

Hooked up and monitored

That's great news, Michael. Big congrats to all three of you! Sure like the one that makes it look like the baby is part of the Blue Man Crew. gringrin

Glad to hear all is well. Not to mention, now you'll have picture subjects for many, many years to come. gringrin

Thanks for all of the well wishes. He's already proving to be quite entertaining (and a decent amount of work as well). I'm sure he'll be sick of being in front of the camera by a young age, but I'm hoping he won't mind picking one up!

X-

He was born via Cesarian at 38 weeks. He was 8 lbs. 4 oz. at birth and 19" long.

Love your photos!

I have a new one on the way, our first, scheduled to arrive the second week of December.

Never knew how exciting the whole process was until I stepped into it.

Plenty of my friends/coworkers have suggested that I will have one of the most photographed babies on the planet... not sure about that, but I am sure there will be a few, few hundred.... maybe a few thousand before it is all said and done.

Thanks for sharing such an intimate moment.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
